Anime Limited Confirms Durarara!! on Blu-ray and DVD
posted on by Andrew Osmond
Anime Limited has announced on its website that it will release the Durarara!!x2 series on Blu-ray and DVD, 'starting later this year.' (Durarara!!×2 Shō , the first of the 'x2' follow-ups to the original Durarara!! series, is currently airing in Japan; it will be followed by Durarara!!×2 Ten, which begins Japanese broadcast in July, and Durarara!!×2 Ketsu next January)
From the Anime Limited website:
Durarara!! x2 is set 6 months following the events at the conclusion of the original Durarara!! series, reuniting the wonderful cast of characters and introducing new ones (including some that were at least referenced in the first season) along the way. All is peaceful in Ikebukero, but you know that won't last long (and it doesn't!) From a serial killer named “Hollywood” terrorising the streets, to there being a bounty on the headless rider with what remains of the local gangs getting involved, even Izaya's sisters (first introduced in episode 25 of the original series) are now in the the mix!
Takahiro Ōmori is directing the television anime at new studio Shuka with series composition by Noboru Takagi. Takahiro Kishida is designing the characters for the series, and Makoto Yoshimori is providing the music. Eri Yamazaki is designing the props, Hiromi Miyawaki is in charge of the color key, Norikazu Kamibayashi is serving as CG producer, Kazuhiko Seki is editing, Jin Tamura is in charge of photography, and the name of the animation's production group will be Ikebukuro Dollars (the same as the first season). The main cast from the original anime is returning to reprise their roles. OKAMOTO'S performs the opening theme "Headhunt" and Three Lights Down Kings performs the ending theme "Never Say Never."
